Every six months or so I consider my support of the Nikon Café and make a donation. I have enjoyed the Café since its inception several years ago. It is a friendly place and one that I come to in order to learn and grow as a photographer. I enjoy my interface with other members and the clutter free, no advertising that is here. It gives me an opportunity to share some of my photographs and hopefully share what little talent I have with others. We have many new members over the past year and some of them may not realize that the Café exists solely on the support of the membership and the generosity of the founders, Patrick Bramlet and Frank Wilson. The bandwidth that we utilize and the hardware is not free. I know that Patrick and Frank appreciate the support that the Café has realized over the years but let's not any of us forget that the expense of running this site is ongoing. I hope that those of you who have not made a donation recently will consider doing so today or in the near future. For those with PayPal, it is as simple as clicking on the red "donate" button at the top of the home page. For those without PayPal, a check or MO directly to Patrick Bramlett would be the way to go. Neither Patrick or Frank has asked that I compose this post but I do know that the funds are needed and encourage you to be generous in making a contribution. I love this place and those who frequent it.
